EPQ help


Recommended Posts

I am Deaf and I want to do an EPQ involving Sign language along side my A levels. I can't decide on a simple topic and question. It has to be something I can write 5000+ words on though. Please help. Here's some previous ideas I had: ( they aren't good idt)

1. To what extent does being deaf impact your life and is it right to be classed as a disability?

2. To what extent does being D/deaf or HOH impact your life, does this have positive and negative impacts and is sign language necessary to learn?

3. How difficult is it to learn sign language for a deaf person?

please help. I have to submit my topic in 2 days.

I am doing a similar thing for my epq, I think all these topics would be good in terms of having a lot of different opinions and point of views. However in my opinion i think the first option or sort of area/theme would be a good idea as there, from what i have researched, are a lot of differing ideas and almost controversy on the topic depending on the persons views or maybe even from where there from which I think could be interesting to research. Then again they all, in my opinion, would be good areas to focus on :) (i might be a bit too late but i hope it goes well)

As it's previously been said, all the topics listed are great topics to look into. I find the first one very interesting as you can discuss not only your own view points surrounding this subject, but you can also include those of others and compare them - you could even compare the opinions of those outside of the the D/deaf community. It's also a good one to compare and provide data and discuss that data, e.g. you could do surveys with it as well! Hope you can figure out what you'd like to do and that it goes well for you! 🙂

    • Once upon a time, in the digital age of 2023, I found myself embarking on a journey that I never could have predicted. It all started with a simple yet profound desire to learn British Sign Language (BSL), and this journey unfolded in the most unexpected way, thanks to my young brother. My younger brother, Alex, was born with a natural curiosity and an unparalleled sense of wonder. He had always been fascinated by different cultures, languages, and ways of communication. One day, while we w

    • Hi there I've been wanting to learn sign language for years, but just found you can do it online so very excited to learn! I don't think it's going to be easy though! If there's anyone on here from Belfast that wants to have a coffee and practice in person, give me a shout! Liz

    • Hi! I’m Emily, I was a CoDa (child of deaf adult) between ages of 5 and 12 as we used BSL at home to communicate with my stepdad who was deaf.    I recently watched a show with a deaf actress in who used ASL and it reminded me that I know quite a lot of basic BSL but I want to brush up on my skills so I can effectively communicate with any BSL users I come across! It’s also a fun hobby ☺️
